I came back to Good Luck Mountain for 2 days with Cam to take advantage of some nice weather, and finally, dry rock. It was nice to be on a familiar approach that was not as marshy as last time. We scrambled a bit further than we had before and reached a very nice ledge that would be suitable for our overnight stay.
We started off by unloading all of our gear and racking up for the first climb of the day. It was a relief to get the heavy packs off of our backs and to set down the trekking poles.
There was a neat crack that we wanted to investigate, but after Cam abseiled in it ended up being nothing interesting, so we left the area.
We spotted another good route from the top, so we set up an anchor and toproped the route. I rappelled down first to climb as Cam belayed me from above. Bon Chance (5.8, 100')
This was one of my favorite trips. Sleeping in the hammocks made me understand why big wall climbers like working on a route for weeks or months at a time, returning to their portaledges every day. I would like to come back to climb here and explore more routes, but I also want to explore more climbs in the Adirondacks.
